Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, 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 previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful advice 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 on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should 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 make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

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