Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to protect while being shipped. Although, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we have. It is possible to ship a motorcycle or a moped without troubles, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tips you will avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's 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 checking the sharp angles or objects that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle resting safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration is the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that might be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a car or van, can help you transport your motorbike without occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Do not forget to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When posting your request on Clicktrans you will receive  a lot of great quotes from shipping providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these providers 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 decreasing number of „empty runs”.
