Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure while being transported. Though, 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 possible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

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

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts 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 obligatory to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

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

 

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