Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable tips you can prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It is essential 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
