Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some useful advice you can prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

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 motorbike 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.
