Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some useful tricks you could avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's crucial 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 angles or items that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
