Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some useful tricks you will avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform 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.
