Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is 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 hook will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget 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 motorbike 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.
