Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect when shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable tips you will prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two belts. It's 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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
