Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tips you can avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
