Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you could avoid any damages, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

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

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
