Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect when transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some valuable advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping 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 situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should 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 hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might accompany the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
