Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some helpful advice you can avoid any damages, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorbike on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
