Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard 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 got. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some valuable tricks you can prevent any damages, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is crucial 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside 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 that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

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