Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some useful tips you can prevent any damages, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorbike 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 dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For instance, 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.
