Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful advice you could prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might accompany the motorbike.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
