Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some helpful advice you could avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
