Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some useful advice you could prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four 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 2 belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident 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 doable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car 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 instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
