Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable tricks you could avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorbike on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For example, 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
