Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect when shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some useful tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform 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 receive  plenty of great quotes from transport providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

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