Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

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

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
