Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some valuable tips you could prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It is crucial 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 parts that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
