Preparing a Motorcycle for Transport.
Not all companies require their customers to complete a checklist to transport a motorcycle. Often times shipping services offer expedited or guaranteed shipping services. By completing some simple tasks the owner can gain some peace of mind by having full knowledge about the condition of their bike.
- Wash the bike – For seasonal motorcyclists especially, thoroughly washing a motorcycle may bring out damages or imperfections that have gone unnoticed.
- Disable the alarm – It would be very inconvenient for the shipper to accidentally set off a security alarm. So be sure that if the bike has an alarm system that it is off.
- Check fluids, battery and tire pressure – It never hurts to have the bike in top shape before enjoying riding it in a brand new location.
These tasks are very simple and will provide the motorcycle the best odds at arriving to its destination safely.
