Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tips you could avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is crucial 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand 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.
