Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some useful tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
