Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to protect when shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable tricks you can prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's important 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 looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform 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.
