Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful tips you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

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