Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect when shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some valuable advice you will avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving 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 is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
