Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some helpful tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorbike 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 motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's essential 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 checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that will accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
