Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also hard to secure when shipped. Although, it turns out that everything 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 difficulties, no doubts about that. The way you will secure it depends on the type of transportation. Owing to some helpful tricks you could prevent any damages, and dents that could happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting your motorcycle using a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is dedicated for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook 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 the safe transport impossible. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered is the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported with the motorbike.

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

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you will get  lots of great quotes from transport companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these providers can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, the service gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
