Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some valuable advice you could avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

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