Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some valuable advice you will prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It's important 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.

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

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
