Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure while being shipped. Though, 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 possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some helpful tricks you could prevent any damages, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. For instance, 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.
