Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some useful advice you could prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car 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 transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
