Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to secure while being transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some helpful advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship 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.
