Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to secure when transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some useful advice you can prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

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

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the car.

 

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