Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure while being shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable advice you can avoid any damages, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping 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's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform 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.
