Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some valuable tips you will prevent any damages, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's important 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable 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 methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
