Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some valuable advice you could prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

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

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the car.

 

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