Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the 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 is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's neccessary 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 shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting 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 may accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can let you transport 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 instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike 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.
