Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some helpful tricks you can avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been 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 will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
