Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to protect when shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we got. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a scooter without obstacles, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some valuable tricks you will avoid any damages, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are moving the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only 2 belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike resting safely in one place will not vary too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration is installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

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

 

Check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorcycle. For instance, 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 will surely receive  lots of great offers from transport providers registered on Clicktrans.

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