Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some valuable advice you could avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is 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 shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to secure 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 van, can help you transport your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
