Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you can prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

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