Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable tricks you will avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
