Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some valuable advice you could avoid any damages, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your 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 motorcycle. In this case 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 shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform 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.
