Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some useful tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.

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

 

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