Prepare a dirt bike for transportation

You can ship a dirt bike abroad or inland using pallet delivery services. When you use a pallet for shipping, follow the steps below:

  • Find a pallet. You can take one in the local supermarket or grocery shop. Make sure that a pallet is sturdy enough.
  • Remove all the detachable parts. You need to take away all the accessories and detachable parts so that they do not damage the body of a dirt bike during transportation. Wrap each of them separately in bubble wrap and put them in a cardboard box. Seal the box using adhesive tape.
  • Secure the wheels. Fasten your wheels to the pallets so they do not move during the transit. That way, a dirt bike will be fixed safely during transportation.
  • Mount your dirt bike. Use several straps or ropes to secure a dirt bike to the pallet. Make sure that they do not create much tension and scratch your off-road motorcycle.
