Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure when transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorbike using 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's important 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 elements that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
