Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some helpful tricks you can prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case 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 one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
