Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some useful tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
