Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped 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 which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
