How to Prepare a Motorcycle for the Shipping Process.
Preparing a motorcycle for its future transport is simple. It won’t take too much time to fulfill the requests of the transporter. The reason behind these requests is to keep the bike and those caring for it, safer while on the road.
- Clean the motorcycle well. There should be no signs of dirt or grime.
- Inspect the bike for damages. Write down anything you notice, including scratches and dents. Take photographs of the motorcycle too.
- Remove any motorcycle accessories or protruding objects such as saddlebags.
- Check all of the fluids and top them off. The fuel tank should read ¼ full or less.
- Fill the tires with air.
- Disable the alarm system. Some transporters may ask you to remove the battery and handlebars.
If the bike is prepared accordingly, the chances of its safe arrival are more likely. Do as the transporter asks and always provide the right documentation for the transport. When everything is ready, it makes the shipping process much quicker and more secure.
