Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some helpful advice you can avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing 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 may be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
