Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some valuable tips you can avoid any damages, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's crucial 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 reasonable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could be dangerous 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 cars. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
