Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some helpful advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case 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 parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that might accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
