Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful tricks you can prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is 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 should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

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

 

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