Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful tips you will avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For example, 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.
