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 how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tricks you can avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

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

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle 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 secure the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
