Different methods we can use to ship your motorcycle

Before ringing our drivers to come and collect your motorcycles for shipping, kindly take time and complete the following preparation tasks:

- From different angles, photograph the motorbikes.
- Drain the braking and transmission fluids, and the engine oil.
- Deactivate the security and motorbike tracking systems.
