Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we had gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some useful tricks you will prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
