Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tricks you will prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

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

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
