Is There Anything I Should Do to Prepare the Motorcycle?
Preparing the motorcycle for transport to another location is important, especially with far distances of travel ahead. If the motorcycle is prepped right, then the shipping process will go along smoothly. Most companies have relatively standard preparation requirements. However, crated shipping methods are all different and will require more preparation, due to the style in which the bike is shipped.
Standard Preparation Procedures:
- The gas tank on the motorcycle shouldn’t be more than a ¼ of a tank.
- Take pictures and write down any existing damage already existing with the cruiser.
- Clean the motorcycle to make sure there is no dirt or debris on it.
- Disable the alarm if there happens to be one.
- Check the battery, tires and fluids.
- Please remove any items that do not normally belong on the bike.
Preparing the motorcycle is quite simple. If the preparation is done, then it will make the transport safer for everyone and the bike should arrive unharmed.
