Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure 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 got. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable tricks you can avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you transport your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
