Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some useful tips you can prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's neccessary 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 shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
