Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure when transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we had gathered. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some useful tips you can prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorbike 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 has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only two belts. It's important 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 shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside 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 above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

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

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will surely get  lots of great offers from shipping providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

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