Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some helpful tips you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation 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 accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

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 van.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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.
