Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tricks you can prevent any damages, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation 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 hook will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck 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 truck.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For instance, 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.
