Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful tips you can avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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.
