Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure when transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tips you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. 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 just next to the motorcycle.

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 van.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
