Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect when shipped. However, it turns out that the majority 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 problems, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some valuable tips you could prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is created for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is crucial 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 angles or parts that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported with the motorcycle.

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

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will get  lots of great quotes from transport companies registered on Clicktrans.

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