Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some useful tricks you can avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

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

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.

 

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