Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some helpful tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's crucial 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 checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. 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 worth considering is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

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