Safe And Reliable Wilton Manors Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
So much pleasure is derived in motorcycle riding. Bike enthusiasts develop a strong bond with their machines over time, making it hard to part with the bike unless there is dire need. We will list some of the serious instances that see bikers come to us in search of shipping services:
- Some bikers suffer from various health conditions hindering them from operating motorcycles. They seek help from A-1 Auto Transport in such instances.
- Hostile weather like strong winds and storms can cause severe damage to the bike or even cause harm to riders. It is best if they use transportation services with heavy-duty trucks in such weather conditions.
- Passing through theft prone regions might be a recipe for hijacking. We can use armored trucks when accessing such areas and your bike will be safe.
Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
We have innovative methods we use to ensure bikes are delivered to customers in good time. However, this depends on the urgency.
- Rail shipping. This can be a great alternative if the region you are shipping bikes to is infamous for rugged and poor roads or affected by traffic congestions.
- Water shipping. A budget shipping option for customers looking to move many units in one shipping without breaking the bank.
- Air shipping. Many clients who seek this service are in the racing profession. Bikes get transported faster to foreign countries; hence, missing out on your competition is a long-gone tale.
- Road shipping. The United States is connected by highways, underpasses, and tarmacked tunnels more than even railways. This makes the option for shipping widely used.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Follow these steps when preparing your motorcycle for shipping for a hassle-free experience:
- Confirm that you are in possession of all the needed travel documents; manuals, licenses, proof of ownership and receipt of purchase.
- Insurance policy is a vital factor, so have yours in place ahead of shipping.
- Washing and drying is a must. You will easily see all the marks and blemishes on the motorbike.
- Inspecting for damages is a handy step that we recommend. Recording marks in books is next step and copies handed over for the shipper’s use.
- Taking images of the bike will be of help in the event that your bike is damaged while on the move. The insurer should have no excuse for withholding the compensation.
- Maintenance of bikes by an experienced mechanic is necessary ahead of shipping.
- Do not leave personal items on the motorbike. If the items get lost or damaged, the insurer cannot compensate for those.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- A good method of finding out the reliability of a shipper is by checking the reviews on their official page. Previous customers should have left positive comments and testimonials. Do not engage in any shipping activity with shippers whose reviews are negative.
- Before dealing with any motorcycle hauling company, make sure that the licenses and permits they hold are validated by the government through chosen authorities. Some of the authorities that control the shipping industry are the American Moving and Storage Association and the Federal Highway Authority.
- Shippers should acquire shipping licenses from the US Department of Transportation before conducting their business. Request to see your shipper’s permits to ascertain that they are bonded.
