Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you could avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is important 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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. 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 will be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van 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”.
