Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some valuable advice you could avoid any damages, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

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

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that will accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

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