Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to protect when transported. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some useful tricks you could avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

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

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory 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 installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.

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

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will surely receive  a lot of great quotes 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 cars. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
