Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some useful tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you transport your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious 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 environmentally friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
