Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being 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 transport a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tips you can avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the 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 has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is neccessary 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you ship 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 suffice to carry your motorcycle. 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
