Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some valuable tips you can avoid any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes 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 essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
