Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some helpful tips you will prevent any damages, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's neccessary 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 angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
