Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we had gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some helpful tricks you can prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you ship your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike 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.
