Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some useful tricks you could avoid any damages, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles 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 neccessary 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
