Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some valuable tricks you can avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 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 situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
