Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful advice you can prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case 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 one should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

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