Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some useful tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case 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 one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. 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 car and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

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

Many of these companies can adjust the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
