Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to protect when shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is feasible 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 useful tips you could avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is essential 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 objects that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
