Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some valuable advice you could prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
