Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case 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 by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck 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 companies can organise the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
