Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorcycle without 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 carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
