Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure when transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tips you could avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. 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 one should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping 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 van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
