Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some valuable advice you will avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike 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 situation you will need only 2 strapping 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 by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements 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 obligatory to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle 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 adjust the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
