Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect when shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful tips you will prevent any damages, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorbikes 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 should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
