Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some helpful tips you will prevent any damages, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 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 case you will need only 2 strapping 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 by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
