Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure when transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we had gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some valuable advice you could avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the car.

 

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