Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some useful tricks you could prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's essential 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 checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that might accompany the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck 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 companies can arrange the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
