Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure while being transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some useful tips you will prevent any damages, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. 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 will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

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