Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable advice you could avoid any damages, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping 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 case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's crucial 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 checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For instance, 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
