Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some valuable advice you could prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation 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 items that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you transport your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
