Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you will avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It's essential 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 looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship 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.
