Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we had gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you transport your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the car.

 

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