Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tips you will avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
