Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some useful advice you could prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two belts. It is 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 looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

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