Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It's crucial 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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
