Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some helpful tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case 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 will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
