Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some helpful advice you can avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 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 2 belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
