Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some useful tips you will prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially 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 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to secure 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 van, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
