Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tips you will avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles 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 will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that will accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you ship 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 suffice to carry your motorbike. For instance, 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
