Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure while being transported. However, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Owing to some valuable tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen when a moped or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this situation you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to transport your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter and loading it in a truck 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 can get  a lot of great quotes from shipping companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less ”empty running”.
