Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we had gathered. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some valuable tips you will prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

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