Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some useful tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of 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 car or van, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
