Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some useful tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 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 elements that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike 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.
