Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some valuable advice you could avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four 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 situation you will need only two strapping 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 checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
