How to get your motorcycle ready for shipping
Getting your motorcycle ready for shipping will help in ensuring that the bike will be safe while it is being transported, handled and stored by the shipping company. The activities included in this step are:
- Checking the engine.
- Taking your bike for maintenance checks by professionals.
- Removing any loosely hanging items and your motorcycle accessories.
- Disabling the alarm system.
- Checking the tire pressure.
- Confirming that the gas level does not go above ¼ of the tank capacity.
- Inspecting your bike and capturing photos of it.
- Washing your bike thoroughly so as to remove the dirt and debris.
Note: Different moving companies may have their own set of requirements related to the preparation of your bike for shipping. It is good to check with the mover you intend to hire to find out what they would like to have done before you hand over your bike to them for shipping. Also, it is good to note that if you intend to transport your bike using crates, you have to drain the fluids and disconnect the battery.
