Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some valuable advice you will prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It's important 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 angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike 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.
