Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some useful tips you will avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's important 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 shipment.

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 reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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.
