Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable tips you can prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorbike. 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
