Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to secure when transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some helpful tips you will avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two 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 accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that might accompany the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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.
