Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect when transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some valuable tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorcycle on 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 motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.

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

 

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