Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure while being transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some helpful tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is important 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

Remember 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 motorcycle and loading it in a van 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 providers can arrange the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
