Keeping a Motorcycle Safe during Shipping

You can keep your motorcycle safer by making sure it is secured properly during transport. Having your bike secured will not only help keep its condition but it will protect those transporting it as well. Whether you choose to transport the bike on your own or choose to buy shipping services through a professional transport service, there are certain products you can buy and things you can do to assure a safe delivery.

The straps you use to tie the motorcycle down to a trailer or on the inside of a shipping container are extremely important for a successful delivery. Even inside a shipping container, you don’t want the motorcycle to shift while it’s on its way to its destination.

You can use tie-down motorcycle assist straps, buckle straps, tie down anchors, or any other durable strap approved for securing a vehicle during its travels.

A lot of transporters or bike owners moving their own vehicles use a removable tow wheel chock. This essentially acts like the boots tow operators use to keep a vehicle from moving even when its engine is started and its given gas. The wheel chock keeps the tires from spinning so the vehicle is stuck in place. This device is usually screwed to the trailer for extra security. You can find wheel chocks in all different sizes. They are sold for use on a single tire or two tires at a time. If you purchase your own wheel chocks, make sure they’re made for motorcycles.
