Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to protect when shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tricks you can prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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.
