Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure while being transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tricks you can avoid any damages, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike 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.
