Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some helpful tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the car.

 

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