Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some helpful tricks you will avoid any damages, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is important 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these companies can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
