Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to secure when transported. Though, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we gained. It is possible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tips you could prevent any damages, and dents that may happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping your motorbike using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is 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 shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorbike 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 companies registered on Clicktrans.

Many of these providers can organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
