Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some useful tricks you can prevent any damages, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike standing 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 may be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

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