Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you will avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created 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 essential 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 checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.

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.

 

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