Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is feasible to transport 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 tips you will prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed 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 is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you ship your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
