Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some helpful advice you can prevent any damages, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorcycle 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 has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's essential 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.

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

 

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