Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable advice you will prevent any damages, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For example, 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
