Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some useful tips you will prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two 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 by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck 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 companies can adjust the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
