Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some helpful tricks you could prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
