Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect when transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is essential 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 looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle 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 above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

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