Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to secure while being transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some valuable tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It is essential 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 angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
