Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure while being shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some useful advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you ship your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike 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.
