Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some helpful tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that 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 is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

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 motorcycle and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
