Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tips you will prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case 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 by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
