Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tips you can prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can let you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike 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.
