Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable tricks you will prevent any damages, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorbike 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 has been 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 hook will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

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

 

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