Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some helpful tricks you will avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike on a trailer you will need four strapping 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 motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's essential 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible 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 methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
