Choosing a motorcycle delivery service might seem easy but there’s a lot to consider before you entrust a total stranger with the transportation of your bike. As experts in short notice motorcycle collections and deliveries in Bristol, we know how worrying it can be when you need a motorbike delivering, and how scary the whole process might seem. Fear not, though. At ACE Services Bristol we understand exactly how you feel, so here are some suggestions to make this process easier for you.
How secure will the motorbike be?
One of the biggest concerns you will have when your bike is being transported is how secure the machine is during its travels. Ideally, the front wheel should be locked into a wheel stand to keep the bike upright, and soft straps should be used to prevent the bike from moving. This is something we wouldn’t think twice about here at Ace Services Bristol, your bike is totally secure when it’s under our care.
What techniques are used to load the bike?
Getting a motorbike safely into the back of a van takes due care and attention. This should be achieved by rolling the bike up a ramp or by using a motorised winch. We always use a wide ramp here at ACE Services for safety’s sake, one that is capable of handling any sized motorbike. Always check to make sure your bike is going to be loaded correctly to prevent any damage occurring.
Is the motorbike monitored during transport?
Loading and securing a motorbike into place is one thing. Keeping a close eye on it is something else. Under no circumstances should your bike be left unattended at any time, you never know what might happen to it. As a dedicated bike delivery service, we would never consider letting a motorbike out of our sight once it’s in our charge.
If the motorbike is being collected on your behalf, how will you know everything is okay?
Sometimes it’s easier to arrange the collection of a motorbike without actually being there in person. If the motorbike is in another part of the country for example, you might be happy for a collection service to pick up the bike on your behalf. Take this approach and you should expect a phone call from the transportation service once they arrive at the collection point. This way you can establish all of the relevant documentation comes with the motorcycle and also get the collection driver to confirm the condition of the bike to you.
How local is the motorcycle delivery company to you?
Is the motorbike delivery service close to you and do they have good access to major motorways and arterial roads? As one of the leading motorcycle collection services in Bristol, we are just a short drive away from the M4 motorway here at Ace Services and have a sound knowledge of the main motorway networks in the UK.
