Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some valuable advice you can prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It is crucial 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 looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
