It is very important that a motorcycle, dirt bike, lawnmower, and/or other gasoline powered equipment is prepared properly before the day of loading. If this is not done a driver will not be able to take the item(s) with him/her. All fuel should be drained and tires inflated, if applicable. It is best to be sure the vehicle is free of any leaks. The battery must be disconnected and the ends taped to prevent sparking. Motorcycle saddle bags should also be emptied, and the fork unlocked.
