Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some helpful advice you could prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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.
