Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to protect while being transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Owing to some useful tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two strapping belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van 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 get  lots of great offers from shipping companies registered on Clicktrans.

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