Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only expensive, but also hard to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some valuable advice you will prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It is neccessary 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 looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting 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 protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

Many of these providers can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
