- Call your bike maintenance expert and have your bike serviced. Shipping an operable bike is one favor you can do for the buyer.
- Wash and dry the bike. If you are busy with work at the office or at home, motorbike washing experts are handy. Let them clean the motorcycle some days before the shipping date.
- Spare some time and inspect your machine for any damage, dings, and scratches.
