Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure while being shipped. Although, 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 transport a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tricks you will prevent any damages, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need four 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 motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is essential 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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to protect 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 motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For instance, 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
