Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure while being 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 doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable tips you can avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

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

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the van.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
