Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some valuable advice you will prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorbike on 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 is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's 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 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 possible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform 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.
