Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some useful tips you could avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is 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 looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Remember 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
