Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect while being transported. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without hussle, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some valuable tricks you can prevent any damages, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is 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 hook will not open up accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also doable to transport a motorcycle inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle 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 surely receive  plenty of great quotes from shipping providers registered on Clicktrans.

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