Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you will avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
