Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some valuable advice you can avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van 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 organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
