Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. 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 will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter 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.
