Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

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

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
