Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some helpful tips you could prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorbike on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the transport.

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 doable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

It is important to 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 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.
