Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tips you could avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is essential 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 looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious 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, shipment gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
