Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some valuable advice you can avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can let you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

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