Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some useful tips you can prevent any damages, and dents that often happen if 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 specially dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be 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 ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

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 platform for lifting your motorbike 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.
