Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure when transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tips you could prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorbike on a trailer you will need four 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 case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts 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 van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the van.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
