Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike 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.
