Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to secure when transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we had gathered. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tricks you can avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorbikes 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 crucial 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 edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
