Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some helpful advice you can prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case 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 hook should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

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

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

 

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

 

When posting your request on Clicktrans you can get  a lot of great quotes from transport companies registered on Clicktrans.

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