Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure while being transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some useful tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike 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.

Many of these companies can arrange the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
