Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. 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 advice you could prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four 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 motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand 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.
