Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some valuable advice you could prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is crucial 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 checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Remember 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 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.
