Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some helpful tricks you can prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
