Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tips you could avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's crucial 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 checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the van.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand 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 receive  a lot of great quotes from transport 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 environmentally friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
