Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some useful tips you will avoid any damages, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is essential 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods 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 car and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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.
