Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some useful tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is crucial 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or parts 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 needed to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
