Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some helpful tricks you can avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
