Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some valuable tricks you can avoid any damages, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the car.

 

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