Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect while being transported. 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 possible 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 useful advice you can avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorbike on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes 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 neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary 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 might accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked 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 shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For instance, 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
