Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tricks you can avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory 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 is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
