Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tricks you will prevent any damages, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case 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 one should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For example, 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.
