Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tips you could avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles 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 crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly 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 reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand 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.
