Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect while being 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 feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some valuable advice you will avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping 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 crucial 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 looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For instance, 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
