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 how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some useful tips you will avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case 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 hook should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
