Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable tips you could prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike 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.
