Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some useful tips you will prevent any damages, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is 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 elements that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
