Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some useful tricks you can prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is important 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

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