Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also difficult to protect when shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tips you will prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are moving your motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is important to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For example, 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will receive  a lot of great quotes from shipping 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, the service gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of ”empty running”.
