Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some valuable advice you could avoid any damages, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 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 motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
