Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful tips you can prevent any damages, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorbike on 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 has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in 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 that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike 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 adjust the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
