Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, 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 gained. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

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

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
