Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some helpful advice you can avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four 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 situation you will need only 2 belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking 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 inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported next to the motorbike.

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

 

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