Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect when shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some helpful advice you will prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle using 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 is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van 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 help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
