Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only valuable, but also hard to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we gained. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some useful tricks you could avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need four 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 motorcycle. In this situation 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 hook will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

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 stand 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 posting your request on Clicktrans you will surely receive  lots of great quotes from transport providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

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