Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some useful tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It is essential 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly tear up 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 needed to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
