Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some useful advice you could avoid any damages, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that might accompany the motorbike.

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

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
