Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some helpful advice you could avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It's crucial 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 parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you transport your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial 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 eco-friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
