Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is doable to transport 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 valuable tricks you will prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

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

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
