Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some helpful tricks you can avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 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 situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand 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.
