Prepping for Motorcycle Shipping.
Preparation is necessary before the motorcycle can be shipped. While some companies may have different requirements, there are some standard procedures. These include:
- Washing the bike and making sure there is no dirt or deposits.
- Checking the fluids, battery and tire pressure.
- Taking pictures and noting any existing damage done to the bike before shipment.
- Making sure that the gas tank is no more than a ¼ full.
- Removing any loose items from the bike.
- Disabling the alarm system.
If all of this procedure is completed, then motorcycle transport should go well. Some companies will also offer insurance on the motorcycle during its shipment. It is up to you if you would like to pay for it or not.
Crated shipping is a very safe method of shipment. This method will have different requirements. These include draining the bike from all fluids, removing the handlebars and mirrors, and even disconnecting the battery.
