Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful advice you can prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 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 motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's important 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 checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the car.

 

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