Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some useful tips you could prevent any damages, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.

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

 

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