Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we had gathered. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some valuable tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident 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 reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
