Transporting a motorcycle
Follow these precautions to make sure your motorcycle is transported properly and with transporters who are qualified.
1. Precautions you should take: Drain the fuel tank and remove the battery.
2. Wash your motorcycle. Even if it is to carry outdoors. It is recommended that you detect all the bumps and scrapes before shipment.
3. If you choose not to remove the battery, turn off the alarm prior to shipping.
4. Be sure to fix the parts and specialized parts such as exhaust, soft or hard side cases, body parts and anything that might get in the way during transport.
5. Make sure tires are inflated properly and have no fluid leakage.
6. Have on hand a list of specific problems that your bike may have. The carrier will want to know about these things during loading and unloading of the motorcycle.
7. To avoid conflicts of damage during shipping, make a report existing damage before you take the bike. It is recommended that you take pictures of the bike with the current date.
8. Also be sure to double all the parts that can double as mirrors and beam to activate the lock of the handlebars.
9. Be sure not to hire transportation businesses who are not qualified for such shipments, as you may damage your motorcycle.
Find a business that is reliable transportation.
Do not send the bike to change position. Leave it in neutral. If you send a job change may suffer internal damage.
Never send the motorcycle with the papers or the key and always asks to be delivered with the signing of a receipt verifying that you have arrived in good condition.
