Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some helpful advice you can prevent any damages, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping 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 motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is 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 shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
