Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some useful advice you can avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

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

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
