Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some useful tips you can avoid any damages, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case 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 hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
