Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we had gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some useful tricks you could prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's important 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
