Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some helpful tips you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case 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 hook should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to secure 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 sufficient to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle 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.
