Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle 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 specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might accompany the motorbike.

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

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
