Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some helpful tips you will prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered is 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 motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these companies can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
