Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the shipment.

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

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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.
