Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we had gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tricks you could prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's 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 checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

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 scooter and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
