Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to protect when shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some useful tricks you can prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can let you transport your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
