Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some helpful tricks you could avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's essential 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

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