Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some helpful advice you can avoid any damages, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case 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 one will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you ship your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. 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 cars. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
