Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some helpful advice you could prevent any damages, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. 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 will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
