Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure when transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable tricks you can avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping 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 motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle 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.
