Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tricks you can prevent any damages, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles 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 crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For example, 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
