Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some helpful advice you could avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case 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 accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

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