Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that everything depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of shipment. Owing to some helpful tips you will prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are transporting the motorbike using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated 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 essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or parts that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also doable to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or another vehicle, can help you ship your motorbike 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 ship 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 will surely receive  multiple great quotes from shipping companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can adjust the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
