Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. 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 type of shipment. Thanks to some useful tips you can prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorbike using a trailer you will need four 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 motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. 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 methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorbike 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 carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform 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.
