Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tricks you will prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed 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 crucial 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 angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
