Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorcycle 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 is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle 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.
