Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to secure when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you can prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping 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 shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
