Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some helpful tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes 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 is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
