Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure when transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tips you will prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike 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 prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that might accompany the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand 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.
