Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some useful tricks you could avoid any damages, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's crucial 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 shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
