Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you could avoid any damages, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these providers can arrange the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
