Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to secure when transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is possible 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 valuable tips you could avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 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 motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's important 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 angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
