Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some useful tricks you can avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that 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 two strapping belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these companies can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
