West Chicago is lauded for being a major transportation hub. The city is the home to the DuPage Airport and headquarters of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) Aviation Central Region. However, any West Chicago resident planning to transport their motorcycle, when moving to a new location or after winning the motorbike from an out of state auction, may find the process quite expensive and tedious. The easiest way to go is to hire a professional moving company like A-1 Auto Transport to ensure your motorbike is delivered in its exact condition without being damaged.

Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle

Domestic Motorcycle shipping

  • Open-air transport

We will ship your motorcycle in an open truck and tightly adjust it on a flatbed so that it doesnโ€™t lean or fall off.

  • Enclosed transport

We ship your motorcycle in an enclosed auto trailer for maximum security.

  • Door to door transport

This method is best used for luxury motorbikes that need special handling from the point where they are bought to the point where they are received by the buyer.

  • Terminal to terminal transport

You will choose a convenient terminal, could be DuPage airport, where you will collect or leave your motorbike for shipment.

  • Crated transport

For inoperative bikes or special bikes, we opt for crated transport.

International Motorcycle shipping

  • RORO (roll-on roll-off)

For overseas shipping, we use RORO method where the motorbike is ridden onto the ship and secured with an in-built mechanism or skids and tie downs.

  • Container

We stabilize the motorbike with straps and tie-downs to make sure that it is immobile throughout the course of the journey.

  • Port to port

We ship your motorcycle from one port to another one but you would be required to pick it up at the destination port.

How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping

  • Clean the motorbike

A dirty motorbike reduces your ability to perform a quality inspection. A basic water wash is fine. No need for a thorough wash with soap and brushes.

  • Make the disconnections

Ensure that the battery and all the alarm systems are disabled, disconnected or turned off.

  • General condition

Ensure that the brakes are in good working condition and there are no fluid leaks.

What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company

  • Number of carriers they have

The shipping company needs to have enough carriers to cover the entire USA territory. That is the only way they can guarantee that you will get quick service delivery to all areas and at a reasonable rate.

  • Ensure that they are licensed and insured transporters

Motorcycle shipping companies are required by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to have an operating license thereunder. Any company you go for should readily provide you with a copy of their operating authority or at least post them on their website.

  • Specialization

Go to a company that specializes in motorcycle handling. Their history should also prove it. If they only deal in one motorcycle brand, say, Harley Davidson, then they may not know how to handle your BMW with its unique design that might make it a bit more complicated to transport. A motorbike is a fragile piece of item and only trained personnel would know how to move it without causing any damage.

  • Select a mover with the proper equipment to move your motorcycle

Many shipping companies will give you an instant quote but will they specify the method they will use to ship your motorbike? A good company will use special tie-downs or straps to fasten your motorcycle and not just the standard E-track straps that may come off during a long journey.
