Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we had gathered. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tips you could avoid any damages, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping 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 edges or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

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

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will surely receive  multiple great quotes from shipping providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies 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 less and less ”empty running”.
