Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some helpful advice you can avoid any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

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

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

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