Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tips you will avoid any damages, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorbike on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case 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 looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

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