Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some valuable advice you can prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen when a moped 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 specially 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 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 shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
