Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some helpful tricks you can avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is neccessary 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 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 motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

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