Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some useful tips you can prevent any damages, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is 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 strapping belts. It is essential 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 looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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.
