Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some useful tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment needed 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 prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorbike. For example, 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.
