Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard 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 have gathered. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tricks you will prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.

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

 

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