Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some useful tricks you can avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
