Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some useful tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to secure 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 not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For example, 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
