Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some useful tricks you will prevent any damages, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's neccessary 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 shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorbike 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 above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
