Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tips you could avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It's essential 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 shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
