Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect when transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some valuable advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It is neccessary 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

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