Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some valuable advice you can prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping 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 case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's neccessary 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported with 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 car.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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.
