Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some useful tips you will prevent any damages, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is 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 strapping belts. It is essential 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 edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

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