Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some useful tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is 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 looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. For example, 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
