Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some useful tips you can prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

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 motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case 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 shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will get  a lot of great quotes from shipping providers registered on Clicktrans.

Many of these providers can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
