Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful tricks you will avoid any damages, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two belts. It is essential 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 elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these companies can organise 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 running”.
