Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some useful tricks you can prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It's essential 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 checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways 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 car and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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.
