Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's important 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 angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
