Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some helpful advice you can avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 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 motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges 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 inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. 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.
