Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful advice you can prevent any damages, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike 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 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 belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in 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 before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For example, 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
