Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some useful tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which 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 is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
