Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to secure when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. 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 mean of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tips you can avoid any damages, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case 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 by accident during the shipment.

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

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorbike. For example, 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
