Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful advice you could prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 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 accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
