Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some valuable advice you could avoid any damages, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike 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.
