Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some helpful advice you could avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's crucial 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 looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
