Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some useful tips you could prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
