Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure while being transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorcycle 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 situation you will need only 2 strapping 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 accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
