Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we had gathered. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some useful advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's essential 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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways 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 with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Do not forget 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 van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
