Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tips you will avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorbike. For instance, 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
