Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure while being transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some useful tips you could avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It's neccessary 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 shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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.

Many of these companies can arrange the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
