Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some helpful tricks you could prevent any damages, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 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 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 edges or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
