Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tricks you could avoid any damages, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle 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.
