Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some useful tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is crucial 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 checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship 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.
