Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect when shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some useful tricks you can avoid any damages, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
