Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some valuable advice you will avoid any damages, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike on 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 essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

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