Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tips you could prevent any damages, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case 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 one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike 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.
