Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some useful tricks you will avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need four strapping 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 situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
