Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some helpful tips you can prevent any damages, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For instance, 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
