Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some useful advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping 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 situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform 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.
