Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some valuable advice you will prevent any damages, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For instance, 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
