Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tricks you could avoid any damages, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case 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 one will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
