Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some useful tricks you will prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which 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 2 belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike installed 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 may accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
