Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we had gathered. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some helpful tips you can avoid any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will surely receive  a lot of great offers from transport companies registered on Clicktrans.

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