Getting ready for shipping: Bike preparation
There are many preparation activities that need to be done as you get ready to ship your bike. The following are some of the ways in which you should prepare your bike:
- Cleaning it thoroughly.
- Checking the engine.
- Disabling the alarm system.
- Removing the motorcycle accessories.
- Checking the fluid levels and topping up the amount, if necessary.
- Checking if the tires are inflated well.
- Inspecting the bike and documenting a report on your inspection.
- Taking good photos of the bike from different angles.
Note: Shipping using the crated option requires extra preparation of the bike by draining the fluids and disconnecting the battery. It is also good for you to confirm with the mover if they have specific requirements on how the bike should be prepared before they receive it. Some expect the handle-bars to be removed.
