Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand 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.
