Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's essential 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 looking at the sharp edges or items 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 motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter 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.
