Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some useful tricks you could prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's essential 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 looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For example, 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
