Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorbike 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 is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's 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 checking the sharp edges or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand 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.
