Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some useful tips you could prevent any damages, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed 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'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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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.
