Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some useful tricks you can avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It's essential 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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
