Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some helpful advice you will avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is essential 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 checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
