Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some helpful tips you will avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four 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 motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's important 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
