Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to secure when transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous 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 method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tips you will avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform 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.
