Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure 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. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some valuable advice you will avoid any damages, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
