Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some useful advice you can prevent any damages, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 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 motorbike. In this case you will need only two belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will 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 motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.

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

 

Check with the transport 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 truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious 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, shipment gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
