Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to protect when transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tricks you could prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods 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 accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
