Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is doable to transport a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some helpful tips you will prevent any scratches, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle using 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 strapping belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck 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 providers can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
