Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tricks you can prevent any damages, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is important 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 edges or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
