Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure while being transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some valuable advice you can avoid any damages, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It's 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 shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle 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 companies 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 less and less ”empty running”.
