Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping 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 method of shipment. Owing to some helpful advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed 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 is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the transport 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
