Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

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 designed for motorcycles 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 is important 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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

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