Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure when transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable advice you will avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping 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 looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

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