Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tricks you could prevent any damages, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping 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 motorcycle. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It is essential 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 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 differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you transport your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
