Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some valuable advice you can prevent any damages, and dents that often happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorbikes 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 neccessary 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 transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your scooter and loading it in a van 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 can get  a lot of great offers from shipping providers registered on Clicktrans.

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