Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need four 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 case you will need only two strapping belts. It's 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 looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that will 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 entire space in the car.

 

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