Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect while being transported. Though, 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 ship a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tips you can prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
