Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some useful tips you will avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It's neccessary 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
