Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some valuable advice you could prevent any damages, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping 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 case you will need only two belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside 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 above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
