Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some valuable tricks you can avoid any damages, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorbike on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that 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 strapping belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry 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.
