Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some helpful advice you can avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It's essential 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 objects that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that might accompany the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
