Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect when shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some useful tips you can avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
