Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some useful tricks you can prevent any damages, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It's crucial 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered 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 motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle 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.
