Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tips you will avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's important 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you ship your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
