Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

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

It is also worth checking the sharp angles 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 required to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
