Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some useful tricks you will avoid any damages, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. 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 substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will surely get  a lot of great offers from shipping companies registered on Clicktrans.

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