Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to secure while being transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some valuable tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when 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 which is created for motorcycles 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 important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
