Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some helpful tips you can avoid any damages, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorcycle 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 which is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck 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 arrange the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
