Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we had gathered. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping 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 situation you will need only 2 belts. It is essential 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 checking the sharp angles or items that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is the installation of 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 hooked to a car or van, can let you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When posting your request on Clicktrans you can get  a lot of great quotes 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 environmentally friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
