Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some valuable advice you can avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two belts. It is essential 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 shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary 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 might be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Do not forget 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 scooter and loading it in a truck 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 organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
