Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure while being transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some helpful tricks you can avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is 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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

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