Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have gathered. It is possible to transport a motorcycle or a scooter without problems, undoubtedly. The way it will be secured depends on the method of shipment. Owing to some useful tricks you can avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need 4 belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is 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 is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly cut the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorbike in a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing worth considering will be installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can help you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Remember to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will suffice to carry your motorcycle. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your scooter 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 can get  plenty of great offers from transport providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can use the full capacity of their trucks. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with decreasing number of „empty runs”.
