Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to secure when transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can let you transport your motorbike 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 transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
