Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tips you can avoid any damages, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's important 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 looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
