Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to secure while being shipped. However, 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 ship a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some helpful tricks you will prevent any damages, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping 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 belts. It's 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 checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter 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.
