Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we got. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some useful tricks you will prevent any scratches, and dents that may happen when a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It's important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles 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 in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you transport your motorcycle not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you can receive  lots of great quotes from shipping companies registered on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can adjust the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
