Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only expensive, but also not easy to protect when shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some helpful tips you will avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated 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 neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

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