Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also not easy to protect when shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without difficulties, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tricks you could prevent any scratches, and dents that could happen if a moped or motorbike is not properly secured.

When you are transporting your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated 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 checking the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the truck and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle 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 listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will surely receive  lots of great quotes from shipping companies registered on Clicktrans.

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