Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some valuable advice you can avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For example, 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 utilise the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
