Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tricks you can prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

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 has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's essential 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 edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe 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 eco-friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
