Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also difficult to protect when transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable tricks you can prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For example, 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 providers can organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
