Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect when transported. Though, 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 motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable advice you will prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

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

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter 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.
