Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some helpful tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case 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 one will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

It is important to 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 motorbike and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
