Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy 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 shipping we got. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some useful tricks you can prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is crucial 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 edges or items that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

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