Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some helpful advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is essential 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 checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. 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.
