Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some useful advice you can avoid any damages, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's essential 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 edges or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike 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.
