Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some helpful advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. 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.
