Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some useful tricks you will prevent any damages, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's 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 items that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might accompany the motorbike.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
