Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect when shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some useful tricks you can prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
