Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we had gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's important 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 edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can let you transport your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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.
