Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some helpful advice you can prevent any damages, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is neccessary 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 shipment.

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

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For instance, 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
