Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure when transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some helpful advice you could prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 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 2 strapping belts. It's 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 transport.

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

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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.
