Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tricks you can prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

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