Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some valuable tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is essential 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

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