Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect 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 transport a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tricks you can prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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.
