Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is essential 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 edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these companies can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
