Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case 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 should not open up accidentaly 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 feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike 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.
