Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some valuable advice you can avoid any damages, and dents that may 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 designed 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's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle 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 companies can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
