Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some useful tricks you can avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's essential 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 items 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 obligatory to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For instance, 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 organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
