Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tricks you could avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
