Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only expensive, but also difficult to secure while being transported. Although, it turns out that the majority depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have. It is doable to ship a motorbike or a moped without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some useful tricks you can avoid any scratches, and dents that may happen when a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorbike on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It is neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth looking at the sharp edges or items that may possibly rip 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 necessary to keep the motorcycle mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to protect the insides of the van and other objects that will accompany the motorbike.

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

 

It is important to check with the transport company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to carry your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand 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 serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When putting an offer on Clicktrans you will surely get  lots of great quotes from shipping providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

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