Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure when transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some useful advice you could avoid any damages, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle 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 that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is 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 one should not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike standing 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 protect the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When posting an offer on Clicktrans you can get  a lot of great quotes from shipping 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 vans. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
