Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some valuable tricks you will avoid any damages, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. 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.
