Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some useful tips you will avoid any damages, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is 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 hook should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
