Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable tips you will avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation 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 hook will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

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