Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we had gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful advice you could avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that 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's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can let you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire 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.
