Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Thanks to some valuable advice you could avoid any damages, and dents that could happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's essential 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 angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the entire space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck 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 get  lots of great quotes from transport companies registered on Clicktrans.

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