Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we had gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some useful tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike mounted 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 prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle 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.
