Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some helpful tricks you will avoid 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 using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles 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 one will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck 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 arrange the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
