Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some valuable advice you could prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorbike 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 motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.

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

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
