Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we had gathered. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some helpful tips you can prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 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 shipment.

It is also worth looking at 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 motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these providers 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”.
