Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. 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 are likely to happen when a scooter or motorbike 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 which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's neccessary 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 parts that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported next to the motorbike.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorbike. 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 arrange the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
