Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect when shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable tips you could avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated 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's important 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 items that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. 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 that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
