Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable tips you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

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

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping 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 van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
