Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some useful tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is 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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

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