Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to secure when transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some valuable tricks you can avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 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 motorbike. In this situation 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 accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that will accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle 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.

Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
