Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect 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 feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is 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 will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle mounted 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 secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle 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.
