Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some helpful advice you could prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping 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 2 strapping belts. It is essential 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the car.

 

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