Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some useful tricks you could prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

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

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck 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 companies can adjust the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
