Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some useful advice you will prevent 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 designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

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 van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
