Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to secure while being transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some helpful tips you will avoid any scratches, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four 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 case you will need only two strapping 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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle resting 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 prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle 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 can get  a lot of great offers from shipping companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can adjust the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
