Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure while being transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable advice you can avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
