Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable tips you can prevent any damages, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It's essential 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice 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 cars. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
