Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you could avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It is crucial 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial 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, transport gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
