Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some useful tricks you can prevent any damages, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case 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 hook will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

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