Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to protect while being shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much previous experience with shipping we got. It is possible to transport a motorbike or a moped without problems, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tricks you will avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially created for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only two belts. It's important 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 cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also reasonable to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment required to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned above. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the van and other objects that will accompany the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can let you ship your motorbike not occupying the entire space in the car.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to ship your motorbike. 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 posting your request on Clicktrans you can get  lots of great quotes from shipping providers registered on Clicktrans.

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