Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tricks you could prevent any damages, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's important 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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
