Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tricks you can prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorcycle 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 motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's neccessary 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 edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
