If you accept transportation in a professional manner, you must prepare your motorcycle for the trip by removing all private items, disconnecting the motorcycle's anti-theft system, locking the handlebars, folding the interior mirrors and leaving the motorcycle in standstill. Motorcycle transport companies handle most of the complications of transporting your motorcycle, but not all of them. Before you pick it up, most will require you to use up the fuel and take out the battery. It's also a good idea to photograph the motorcycle from various angles, remove the mirrors, luggage and electronic devices, turn off the alarms and take the keys.
The delivery location may be far from your real destination, so the truck has room to maneuver, so remember to bring gas, battery and keys when you receive delivery. Check if the motorcycle is damaged before leaving and file any claims immediately, in the presence of the driver if possible. Take photos to support your claims. This is because shipping motorcycles requires affordable equipment and no more than a single carrier.
Here are some tips for loading, transporting or shipping your motorcycle and getting it to its destination in one big, shiny piece.
