Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some helpful tricks you can avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation 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 one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can let you ship 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 suffice to carry your motorcycle. For instance, 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.
