Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tricks you can prevent any damages, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes 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 crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up 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 motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported next to 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 shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
