Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to secure when transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some helpful advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that 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 two strapping belts. It's neccessary 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
