Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some valuable tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. 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 might be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
