Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some helpful tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike not 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 motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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.
