Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tricks you could avoid any damages, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. 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 hook will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
