Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, 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 previous experience with shipping we have. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some helpful tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case 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 should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

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