Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tips you will prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorbike. For instance, 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
