Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful tricks you could avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported next to the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
