Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tricks you will prevent any damages, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is important 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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

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