Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to secure while being shipped. Though, 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 problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some valuable advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. 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 one will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle 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 before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
