Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some valuable advice you could avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

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 motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways 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 may be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

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