Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some useful tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is important 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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip 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 motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
