Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some useful tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping 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 motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's crucial 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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

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 motorbike 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.
