Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is 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 is crucial 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 tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a van. 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 to be considered is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand 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 organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
