Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect when transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some helpful tips you will prevent any damages, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
