Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure while being transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some valuable advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the car.

 

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