Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tips you can prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
