Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to secure while being shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some helpful tricks you can prevent any damages, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

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

 

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 stand for lifting your scooter 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.
