Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some useful advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that 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 neccessary 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
