Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect when transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some useful tips you can prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorcycle 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 motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It's essential 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
