Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure when transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tricks you can prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. 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 by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported next to the motorbike.

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

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle 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.
