Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some helpful tricks you can prevent any damages, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the car.

 

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