Safe And Reliable West Sacramento Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
Motorcycles are a good means of transportation. However, in some cases it may become necessary to search for a different means of transportation so as to move them from one location to another. The circumstances which require you to hire motorcycle shipping services include when:
- A bike is to be transported from the motorcycle dealer to the buyer.
- Adverse weather and poor road conditions make it too risky to use a bike.
- Businesses or individuals are relocating and they need to transport their bikes to the new address.
Our motorcycle shipping methods
The motorcycle shipping methods we use include:
- Shipping via road: This is the most common way to transport bikes because almost all destinations have good road infrastructure.
- Shipping via air: This is suitable for cases in which prompt delivery is needed and the cost is not a limiting factor.
- Shipping via rail: This option is good because there are no delays experienced while the bike is being shipped. This is because unlike shipping via road, there is no congestion.
- Shipping via water: This option is a good choice when transporting a bike overseas.
Getting a bike ready for shipping
It is important that you get your bike ready for shipping. This is so as to make it easy for the mover to handle your bike and to ensure that it is in good condition. This also helps in making sure that the bike will not possibly lead to accidents due to the spilling of fluids. To prepare your bike:
- Clean it and ensure there is no dirt or debris on it.
- Check the engine.
- Check on the fluid levels (top up where necessary).
- Remove your belongings and any accessories that are attached to the bike.
- Confirm that the level of the gas in the tank is at a maximum of a quarter.
- Disable the alarm system.
- Confirm if the tires are well inflated.
Note: If you are shipping using the crates option, you will have to drain the fluids and disconnect the battery. You may check if the mover has specified on what needs to be done so as to get your bike in a condition that meets their requirements. You should also take photos of your bike and make a report of its condition. This will come in handy in the event that you are to file a claim for any damages caused to it when it being shipped.
