Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some valuable advice you will prevent any damages, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorbike on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorbike without occupying the entire space in the van.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
