Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some helpful tips you can avoid any damages, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorcycle on 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 motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's neccessary 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 parts that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

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