How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Be sure to prepare your bike in accordance with the shipper’s guidelines prior to the pick-up. We have a few guiding points on how you should get your scrambler ready for shipping.
- Visit or call an expert to perform the routine maintenance service on your bike. This is to ensure that you ship a bike in good condition.
- The bike should be clean before shipping. Also, any existing marks are more visible on a clean bike.
- The tire should have appropriate air. Well-inflated tires act as cushions when the truck passes through a rough terrain.
- Level of the gas should not rise beyond a ¼ of the tank capacity.
- Fluids in the bikes should be drained. Some fluids are known to be corrosive and flammable.
