Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful tricks you could prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
