Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to protect when transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is 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 should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For example, 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
