How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Preparation of a motorcycle before shipping is required so as to ensure that your bike will be safe while being shipped and also to ensure the safety of the team handling your bike. This activity may require you to take the following actions:
- Remove the motorcycle accessories.
- Wash the bike thoroughly so as to remove the dirt and any debris.
- Secure the lamps and any other fragile parts.
- Check the engine and the fluid levels.
- Confirm that the gas level in the tank does not exceed ¼ of its capacity.
- Disable the alarm system.
Different motorcycle shipping companies may have different preparation procedures and it is therefore good to confirm such information with the shipping company involved. Some movers require that you remove protruding parts such as the handlebars. Also, when using the crated shipping option, additional preparation is required. This will include disconnecting the battery and draining all the fluids.
