Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tricks you will avoid any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It's crucial 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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle 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.
