Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some helpful tricks you could avoid any damages, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorcycle 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 situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's important 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 angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorbike. For instance, 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
