Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful advice you will avoid any damages, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 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 2 strapping belts. It's 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle 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.
