Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful advice you will avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is 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 neccessary 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

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