Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we gained. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some helpful advice you can avoid any damages, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 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 motorbike. In this case you will need only two 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 accidentaly during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that might be transported just next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you transport your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the truck.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For example, 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 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 less and less ”empty running”.
