Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Remember 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
