Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful advice you could prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 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 accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
