Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we got. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable tricks you could prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle 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 above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these providers can organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
