Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some useful tips you could prevent any damages, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform 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 companies can arrange the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
