Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful tricks you could prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two 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 by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or parts 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 truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary 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 may be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can let you transport your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these companies can adjust the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
