Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some valuable advice you could prevent any damages, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorbike on 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 is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
