Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some helpful advice you can prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It is important 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 looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
