Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure while being shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable tricks you can avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles 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 essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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.
