Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some helpful tips you can prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. 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 should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported next to the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these providers can organise the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
