Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure 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 gained. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some useful advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck 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 providers can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
