Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is essential 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 transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 substantial 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, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
