Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect when shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some helpful tricks you will prevent any damages, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For instance, 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
