Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect when transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable advice you can prevent any damages, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is essential 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 checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
