Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some useful tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles 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 neccessary 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 checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
