Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some useful tips you can prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped 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 specially 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 belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
