Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some useful tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's neccessary 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 rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these companies can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
