Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to secure when transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some valuable advice you can avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case 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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed 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 is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported next to the motorcycle.

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

 

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