Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some useful tips you will avoid any damages, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 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 situation you will need only two belts. It is neccessary 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 checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
