Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some valuable advice you can prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It is important 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 objects that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.

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

 

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 platform 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.
