Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tips you can avoid any damages, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the shipment.

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

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

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