Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tricks you can avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated 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 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 doable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck 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 sufficient to transport your motorbike. 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
