Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect when transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some valuable tips you will avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the van.

 

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