Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect when transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some useful tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes 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 crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the shipment.

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 possible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can help you transport your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

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

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you can receive  plenty of great offers from shipping providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

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