Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some useful tips you will prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is important 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 checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of 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 hooked to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

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 truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
