Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some useful advice you can avoid any damages, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported just next to 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 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 stand 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
