Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some helpful advice you can prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need four 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 situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's important 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 angles or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike standing 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 secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike 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.
