Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to secure while being transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some helpful advice you can avoid any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It's 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 shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can let you transport your motorbike not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could be dangerous 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 can get  lots of great quotes from transport companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
