Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
