Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some useful tricks you could avoid any damages, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

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

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck 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 organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
