Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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 vans. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
