Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to secure when transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we had gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is crucial 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 angles or items that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
