Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some valuable tricks you could avoid any damages, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that might accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform 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 providers can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
