Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tips you can prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorcycle using 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 has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
