Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some useful tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. 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 one should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For instance, 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.
