Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some valuable advice you will prevent any damages, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

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