You know there comes a day where everybody needs to have there motorcycle transported somewhere. So today we're going to talk about how to ship a motorcycle. Hi, I'm Steve Greenstein from Jim's Harley Davidson in St. Pete. One of the things that you want to do when shipping a motorcycle would be, you want to contact your local moving company. Allied is a very good one. They ship motorcycles. You could also want to contact your local dealer. But once you've contacted the shipper, they're going to tell you what you need to do to your motorcycle, lot of them want the gas drained, they want the battery disconnected. Some say they want 'em put in a pallet. A lot of Harley dealers will even provide that pallet for you free of cost. They'll load it for you in the bike... or the bike into the pallet. And they'll pick it up and put it in the back of the truck for you with their forklift. So if you check with your local dealer, he can help you with getting your bike loaded. Each shipper has different requirements of how they want the bike... or what condition they want the bike in when they ship it for you. It's very simple. So are easier to deal with than others, but really a rule of thumb, is you would like the battery disconnected and the gas drained out of the motorcycle. Again, this is just some simple instructions on how to ship a bike. Have a great day. This is Steve Greenstein from Jim's Harley Davidson in St. Pete.
