Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorcycle using 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 motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 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 transport.

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

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
