Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some helpful tricks you could prevent any damages, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping 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 motorcycle. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It is neccessary 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
