Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tips you will avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is neccessary 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 parts that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you ship your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike 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.
