Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some valuable tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two 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 checking the sharp edges or parts that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you ship your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the van.

 

It is important to check with the shipping 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
