Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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.
