Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you could prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It's neccessary 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
