Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure while being transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some valuable tricks you can avoid any damages, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping 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 motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

Remember 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 motorbike and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
