Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four 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 situation you will need only 2 strapping 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 checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.

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

 

Remember 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 motorbike and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these providers can adjust 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 decreasing number of „empty runs”.
