Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some useful tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It's essential 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 shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. 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 will be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you transport your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
