Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some useful advice you can prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping 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 motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

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