Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only valuable, but also hard to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a scooter without problems, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some helpful advice you could prevent any scratches, and dents that are likely to happen if 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 that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation 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 one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or parts that may possibly rip the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorcycle installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing worth considering is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorbike.

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

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to ship your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

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

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