Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure when transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some useful tricks you will prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in 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 may be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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.
