Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some useful tips you will prevent any damages, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's 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 looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
