Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some helpful tips you will prevent any damages, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorcycle using 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 crucial 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 checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
