Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some helpful advice you will avoid any damages, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four 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 crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

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