Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect when shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we had gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some useful advice you could prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

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

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of 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 attached to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
