Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some useful tricks you could avoid any damages, and dents that may happen when a moped 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 that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is crucial 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 looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

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