Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some helpful tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is important 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you ship your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will surely get  lots of great offers from shipping companies registered on Clicktrans.

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