Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable tips you could avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
