IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THEY HAVE THE REQUIRED SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE
TO SAFELY TOW AND OPERATE A TRAILER.


Extra care must be taken when using a motorbike trailer. Motorbikes can be very heavy and awkward to manoeuvre on and off of a trailer. Always have at least two people to load and unload the motorbike trailer.

Loading / unloading a motorbike

  • Ensure the trailer is coupled to a vehicle so that it can’t tip or roll away.
  • Line up the ramp on a flat surface, ensuring it is securely attached to the trailer using a strap.
  • Ensure the bottom of the bike will clear the ramp angle without bottoming out.
  • Use a safety step to climb on and off of the trailer to prevent straining your back.
  • Never ride the bike up the ramp, have 2 people load the bike under control using the bikes brakes.

Note: If the bike bottoms out at the top of the ramp, the bike can stop instantly and tip or cause injury. Use caution and have 2 people control the vehicle at all times.

How to secure a motorbike to a trailer

  • Strap down the front wheel to prevent rear movement.
  • Strap down the rear wheel to prevent forward movement.
  • Strap down the handle bar area to prevent side to side movement.
  • Check your straps regularly during travel as they can loosen or break.

Note: Always use rated tie downs that are in good condition and fit for purpose.
