Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tips you will avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case 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 will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck 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 adjust the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
