Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure when transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some helpful tricks you could avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can let you ship your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike 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.
