Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some valuable tricks you can prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these providers can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
