How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
So, you have succeeded finding a reputable motorcycle hauling service. Now, you have to prepare your bike for transportation but have no idea how to. How is this done? This particular article explains how bike owners can prepare their motorcycles for transportation.
- Wash your bike until it’s squeaky clean and dry it. Dust, grime, or mud can conceal dings, or even discolorations. Washing the bike thoroughly will expose the existing damage.
- Disable the GPS and alarm systems.
- Do not gas up. Do not ship the bike with a full tank. Gasoline adds weight and causes risk to the cargo.
- Inspect for leaks. Before the shipper arrives, inspect the entire bike for fluid seepage. In any, get it repaired fast!
- Tire pressure is to be checked. Over-inflating or even under-inflating the tires can damage the tires while in transit. Ensure that there are no slow punctures, fix them if any.
