Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tricks you can avoid any damages, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's 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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you transport your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice 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.
