Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some valuable advice you will avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

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

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

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform 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.
