Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tips you can avoid any damages, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is 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 checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

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