Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some helpful tricks you can prevent any damages, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes 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 one will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

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

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
