Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some useful tips you can prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four 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 two belts. It is 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle mounted 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 prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike 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.
