Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is feasible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some useful advice you can prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It's essential 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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle mounted 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 secure the insides of the van and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or another vehicle, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When posting your request on Clicktrans you will receive  plenty of great offers from shipping companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

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