Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable tips you will prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported next to the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
