How to transport a scooter
If you hire a transport company to move your scooter from one place to another, you want it to be delivered in better shape than if you had decided to drive the whole distance yourself.
If you put your mind to figuring out the safest and most hassle-free way to transport it, your single-track vehicle will be grateful to you 🙂
Thanks to some useful protection tips you can avoid the damage, dents and scrapes that are likely to happen when a scooter is not well cared for during transport.
Let’s dive into the details!
The key to success is to make sure your moped is protected from moving to the sides.
“For a scooter to stay still during transport we need to make sure that it’s not tilted to the side and that there is no chance that it will shift around”, says Dariusz Kikoła, owner of PHU Derek, a company specializing in selling bikes, scooters and motorcycles.
Depending on the size of the scooter you can choose transport methods similar to those used when transporting a motorcycle – transporting the scooter in a van or on a trailer.
Below, you can find another method– transporting on a pallet:
1. Make sure that the scooter does not stick out of the pallet.
2. Strap down the following elements:
– scooter trunk (both sides)
– panels holding the handlebar.
3. Protect the scooter with strech foil.
4. Wait for the transport provider to load the scooter with a forklift.
