Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure while being transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some helpful tips you can prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
