Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some useful tricks you could prevent any damages, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is 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 important 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 looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you transport your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
