Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some helpful tips you could avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
