Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some valuable advice you will avoid any damages, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's important 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 shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might accompany the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

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