Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect when shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
