Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some valuable advice you will prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorbike on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck 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 transport providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
