Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to secure when transported. However, it turns out that the majority 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 obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

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 created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It's neccessary 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 edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
