Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure when transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some helpful advice you will prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated 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's 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 edges or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported 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 van.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
