Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some useful tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
