Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure when transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
