Safe And Reliable Winder Motorcycle Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
Whenever seasons change, people (inclusive of bikers) tend to relocate. Everyone wants to experience fine weather around the year. Winder, Georgia falls under the Sun Belt region where visitors swarm when winter sets in back at their towns.
At times it is tiring to ride your motorbike over long distances. A-1 Auto Transport provides efficient motorcycle moving with options like crated shipping, open-air transport, and containerization. Allow us to bear the burden of moving your bike to the recipient while you handle other tasks at home or your workplace.
We have several different transport options you can pick from, then sit back and relax knowing they your cargo will reach the recipient safe and sound.
Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle
- Open-air transport. Speaking of open-air trailers, these are the most preferred on our list. The vehicles have carrying capacities of 500 motorbikes each. However, they are neither fitted with roofs nor sides. Therefore, your motorbikes are exposed to many components.
- Enclosed auto transport. This shipping method entails the use of watertight vehicles. Roofing and sides are present. The environment inside is ideal for shipping exotic motorbikes.
- We use secure metal containers to ship your motorcycles. The good thing about this method is that containers can be loaded on lowboy trucks or in enclosed trucks.
- Palleted bike shipping. We will build wooden crates that have features such as skids, soft-ties, and protection perimeter.
How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Preparing a motorcycle gives the owner the chance to ensure the shipment is seamless. This prevents pointing fingers to shippers or handlers in case something goes wrong. Read along to find out how you should prepare your motorcycle.
- Arrange necessary papers early enough. The papers are used by shippers to get cleared at the customs.
- A gap insurance is important. The policy ensures you are compensated for some risks not included in the motor carrier insurance.
- Ship a clean motorcycle. There is danger in shipping a dirty bike especially if mud particles block the air vents.
- Before loading the bike on the shipping truck, examine it entirely and record any damage you find.
- Use a high-end camera to take pictures of the motorbike on all sides. Ensure these images reach the recipient as well.
- Your usual mechanic can help you with doing maintenance work on the motorbike.
- Don’t allow your personal items to get shipped in the bike’s trunks. If these get lost, the insurer will not be held responsible.
- Deactivate the alarms and GPS devices, lower the fluid and gas levels, and inflate the tires appropriately.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- The presence of a motorcycle shipping company is vital to enhance solid trust between the client and the hauler. The clients are sure of where to run to if something is amiss. That said, always ensure the hauler has at least one office in your city and in the region of the recipient.
- Motor carrier insurance does not show that your shipper is careless. Rather it shows that they really care. The next time you are planning to ship your motorcycle, check the type of insurance policy It is an added advantage if they cover motorcycles using comprehensive insurance.
- Drivers working for the shipping firm you are hiring should have deep knowledge of the routes to your home and to the recipient’s location. It is a plus if they know of shorter routes to take. When they use these, they can save on fuel and make quicker deliveries.
