Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure while being shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tricks you can avoid any damages, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
