Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure when transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some useful tricks you will prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It's essential 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 angles or items that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing 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 attached to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
