WITH the inflexible state of British laws on insurance, taxation and MOTs, the need to put a bike in a van is greater than ever. If you’re buying a bike second-hand, hiring a van and collecting it is often much less grief than sorting insurance and the rest while sitting in someone’s front room. Add in taking bikes to track days and picking up broken-down ones, and you can see why strapping a bike into a Sprinter is a useful skill to have.

The basics are simple enough: you need a van that’s big enough to take the bike, a ramp to help get it in, and some method of securing it in place. But there’s always plenty of scope to f**k it up, as the video below demonstrates. Following our tips on the following pages to avoid being one of them (and for more funny loading fail videos).
