Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some helpful advice you will prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike 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 truck and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
