Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect when shipped. 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 transport a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tricks you could prevent any damages, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike 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 2 belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or items that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When putting an offer on Clicktrans you will surely receive  a lot of great quotes from transport companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these providers can adjust 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 decreasing number of ”empty running”.
