Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. 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 type of shipment. Thanks to some useful advice you could avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four 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 motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It's 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 shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle 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.
