Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some helpful advice you can avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the shipment.

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

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can let you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

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