Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some useful advice you can prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
