Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some valuable tricks you could prevent any damages, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 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 by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike 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.

 

When putting an offer on Clicktrans you can get  lots of great quotes from transport companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

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