Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is essential 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 looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

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 platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
