Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some useful tips you will avoid any damages, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike 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 secure the insides of the van and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck 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 adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
