Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorbike on a trailer you will need four strapping 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 motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is neccessary 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 angles or items that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For example, 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.
