Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority 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 scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some useful tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorbike 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 motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.

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

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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, shipment gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
