Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of transportation. Thanks to some valuable advice you can prevent any damages, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping 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 is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the van and other objects that may accompany the motorcycle.

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

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike 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 putting an offer on Clicktrans you will receive  multiple great quotes from shipping companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

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