Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable advice you could avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes 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 essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the transport.

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

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
