Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some helpful tricks you can prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is 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 hook should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorbike. For instance, 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
