Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to secure when transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tricks you can prevent any damages, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It's important 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 looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter 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.
