Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some useful advice you will avoid any damages, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 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 strapping belts. It's neccessary 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 checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
