Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorcycle 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 created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let 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 suffice to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
