Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some useful advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
