Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult 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 shipping we have. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorbike 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 2 strapping belts. It's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you ship your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
