Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure while being transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tricks you can avoid any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation 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 will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported next to the motorbike.

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

 

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