Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tricks you could prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that might accompany the motorbike.

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

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle 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.
