Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. 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. Owing to some helpful advice you can prevent any damages, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorbike on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been 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 one should not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.

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

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike 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 posting your request on Clicktrans you will get  plenty of great quotes from transport providers registered on Clicktrans.

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