Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some helpful tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 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 motorbike. In this case you will need only two belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike 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 above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can let you transport your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

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