Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some useful tips you will prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It is essential 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 looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
