Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you can prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle on 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 motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. 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.
