Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure while being shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some useful tips you will avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

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

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the van.

 

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