Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some helpful tricks you will avoid any damages, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

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

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported next to the motorbike.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
