Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect when transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable tips you will prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

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

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
